With a new year, new interior trends. 2018 was the year of rose gold appliances and bold floors, 2019 was the year of earth tones and gray wood, so what will be the year 2020? Here is a guide to the biggest trends expected in interior design for 2020.
Over the past decade, the room color schemes seemed to gravitate to bold colors and designs, abandoning the neutral color palette that seemed to dictate interior design for years. Neutral colors are coming back strongly in furniture, decoration and paint selection. From warm browns to medium tan to light peaches, the neutral color palette is expected to be popular in living and family spaces as well as in bedrooms.
A neutral color scheme adds a warm and comfortable feel to any environment. Neutrally colored rooms and furniture can also be customized by using decorative pillows and rugs in one space.
Interior design is using more than just natural colors but also natural materials. Environmentally friendly products are constantly incorporated into interior design; This is especially true on hardwood floors. Hardwood flooring remains the most popular floor covering in interior design and customers are now gravitating to hardwood more than ever because it is the most sustainable and requires few resources and a low amount of energy to create.
Hardwood also comes in a variety of styles, textures and wood types, making it a smart interior design option for the new year.
Geometric patterns have been present in recent years, however, as more designers incorporate them into their designs, it is expected to be an important part of interior design by 2020. Geometric shapes are on the rise in lamps, floors, shelves. , art, wallpaper (see number 7 on our list!) and even furniture like hexagon-shaped chairs.
Without giving up the classic or luxurious feel of a room, geometric shapes are the perfect thing to incorporate to make a subtle statement.
Like geometric shapes, a bold backsplash is another way to subtly highlight an environment. Backsplashes can totally change the feel of a kitchen or bathroom with the right color and design. Drop mundane stone or tile backsplashes by 2020 and install a bold and authentic backsplash.
Green furniture and tapestries are being sold in more and more places by 2020. Perhaps returning to the natural feel of a home, green also provides a soothing feel to the room as well as adding a creative touch. Green pillows, blankets and area rugs are also being featured on popular interior design websites and magazines.
Matte Black was popular in the past, but began to decline in popularity as rose gold and metals became increasingly popular. Matte Black is back in the makeover of the kitchen and bathroom. John Kang of Goldleaf Designs, a custom home builder in south jerseysays many of its customers are installing black matt taps and other appliances in their kitchens and bathrooms.
A popular trend in the 1970s and 1980s, wallpaper is making a strong resurgence. In particular, floral wallpaper is a trend to be seen in 2020. While neutrals are a popular trend, bold and colorful wallpaper is a trend that should take off next year as well.
When redesigning your bedroom or home, keep these interior trends in mind. These trends will renew any space in a unique and current way.
